So this first app is Wattpad.

It’s described as a storytelling platform which basically means that you can  not only write your book on this platform, but you can also share your writing with this community of over  million readers and writers. Now this isn’t an app that I personally use but it does come highly recommended by other writers.

Next up is Final Draft.

This is a software that I use on my computer but it’s also an app that allows you to write and edit your screenplay on the go. You can also send or share your files between multiple platforms and backup your work to Dropbox and iCloud. Now this particular app is going to be really good for those of you who are interested in writing screenplays, TV sitcoms, and stage plays.

The Otter app is described as a smart note-taking app.

Although it’s not intended for this purpose, it can also be useful to writers who are unable to type their book. And one thing that I really like about this app is that the transcriptions are usually pretty accurate. You can export the audio or the text, and you can share your transcription via email or text.

Another app that is useful for writers is the Kindle app.

Amazon’s Kindle app allows you to turn your iPhone or iPad into a Kindle, so you don’t even have to purchase a Kindle you can download this free app and it allows you to read e-books directly from your phone or your iPad. This app will help you to do research on your genre, target audience, or writing in general. I personally use this app for research purposes and learning, so use your imagination and think of different ways that you can help to improve your writing.

The List For Writers app is one that I just found recently, but I absolutely love this app because it allows you to create character profiles.

Now when I say character profiles, I don’t just mean the physical characteristics or the name or occupation of your character. This app provides suggestions for just about everything that you can think of as it relates to your characters. So for example: milestones that they may have during the book, their belief system, and behaviors. And it also allows you to give consideration to plot and geographical locations. I mean this app is absolutely extensive and I just started using it with my clients as well. If you want to connect with readers and sell more books, make sure to subscribe!
